Feel free look for what you need from basic magick/ spell info, to herbs stones oils, spells, spells, spells of all kinds .Candle Magick . Reading from a normal deck .Lunar information I also will be adding more as well.
1. Know what you want. Write out the details of your goal.
For whom or for what is the magick intended?
What type of energy do you want to create?
Why are you doing this - what's your true motivation?
2. Decide which magickal method you want to use .
. If you want love to grow, for example, you could perhaps use a spell that included rich soil and seeds (Symboloically planting the emotion).
3. Choose appropriate tools Gather them together in one place so you don't have to hunt for an item in the middle of your work.
4. Create sacred space before you begin, if you wish.
5. Express your need/desire literally or symbolically.
Use words, tools, components, and/or actions. For example, you might construct a spell to improve self-love that included speaking the phrase "I love you" three times while looking in a mirror, followed by a self-hug
6. Build energy to support your goal.
Use things like chants, incantations, meditations, imitation, song, dance.
7. Keep your mind on the goal throughout the procedure.Focus
Also add visualization it helps you focus.
8. Detach the energy from yourself and project it outward.
The energy won't do much good if it's still tethered to you or the sacred space. Visualize it begin disconnected or cut away from yourself by a loud noise and/or fast movements like slicing your hands up and out toward the direction in which you want the energy to move.
9. Release the sacred space if one was created.
10. Ground yourself.
Sit down, get your breathing back to normal, and perhaps eat something crunchy. Magick takes a lot of personal energy, and you might fin yourself lightheaded or jumpy afterward if you don't do this step
Basic Spell Design
Remember that magick is the manipulation of energy, a thought is a form of energy and a visualization is an even stronger form of energy.Because of the very nature of magick, each working should be highly individualized and personal. Even if following a traditional spell, it should be tailored to your specific needs to be most effective for you. Understanding the basics of spell construction will enable you to formulate your own specific, effective spells for any purpose you desire.. The very first step is to decide what your desired goal is to be. It is important, also, that you choose your time carefully. You should take into consideration all astrological implications, energy currents and moon phases.
Aries action enthusiasm
Taurus renewal sensuality
Gemini communication curiosity
Cancer emotion nurturing
Leo vitality determined
Virgo organizing studious
Libra balance cooperation
Scorpio sexual philosophical
Sagittarius strength humor
Capricorn authority ambitious
Aquarius innovation social
Pisces sensitivity idealistic
Bear in mind that magickal workings for gain, increase or bringing things to you, should be initiated when the moon is waxing (from dark to full); when the moon is waning (from full to dark), it is time for magickal workings of decrease or sending away.The highest energy occurs at the full moon and, therefore, this is the most powerful time for magickal workings. The Dark and new moon is the next most powerful time for magick.Follow nature's natural energy currents. There is a natural time for starting things (a planting time), for maturing things (a growing time), for reaping things (a harvest time) and, of course, a time for rest and planning.
When choosing a place to do your magickal working pay particular attention to your needs, for you must be comfortable. Your place should be private, quiet and secure. If at all possible, set aside a special place for this purpose only. An unused room, a special corner of your bedroom, a quiet, secluded spot in your garden. A place that is yours. A place that you can come to whenever need arises and that is as free from intrusion of others as possible.
Prior to your ritual, prepare yourself and your tools byo clean and purify. Historically, people have fasted, followed meticulous and detailed bathing practices, practiced chastity and used many other methods.
Most often a ritual bath is the preferred method. A bath frequently utilizing candlelight, fragrant herbs, bath salts or sensuous oils. A sumptuous hot bath, special bathing preparations and appropriate lighting, combined, can create the soothing effect which will help in the very important step of relaxing and clearing the mind completely of all mundane thoughts and experiences of the day. Your ritual bath should, also, begin to set the specific vibrations conducive to your purpose into motion. You must not only cleanse and purify but must, also, begin to create the type of energy necessary. Once your purification process has been accomplished, you are now ready to begin. Proceed to the special place you have previously chosen in which to perform your magick. If at all possible, you should make use of the primitive responses set into motion by a well chosen piece of music. Your music should start slowly and build to a rousing climax.
As you use your oils, light your candle or incense (or utilize any other tool you have chosen), you should begin to further intensify the energy that you have set into motion around you. A high degree of intensity is vitally important.
The altered state of consciousness that you must reach is not a meditative state. Anything that interferes with your ability to concentrate upon, reach and control the high energy state necessary to perform magick should be avoided. Such as, screaming children, a sink full of dirty dishes, use of alcohol or drugs, etc.
It is suggested that you do not scatter your energy by attempting to do more than one magickal working at a time.
Remember that magick is the manipulation of energy, a thought is a form of energy and a visualization is an even stronger form of energy. Your visualization can be a method used to intensify further and direct your will. Your visualization can be the method by which you control the magickal energy you have produced. You must know what you want. You must see it. You must feel the high energy flow. You must direct it.
One of the most important elements in the practice of any form of magick is the universal law of cause and effect. The most important consideration is the universal law of retribution. this means that no matter what you do, it comes back to you in like kind.It is the nature of things that as you send something out it gains momentum, so that, by the time it comes back to you, it is stronger.
This is how I was taught and I pass along.

Winter Essential Oils
Aromatherapy brings us the aromatic energy of living plants in the

the emotionally debilitating effects of winter. Aromatherapy is
supportive in the winter season of quiet regeneration. Winter
essential oils cleanse and freshen air in homes closed tight against
the cold weather. Essential oils for winter include woody,
evergreen, citrus, spice and resin oils. Gingerbread and delicious
spice cake come to mind with pungent essential oils such as clove,
cinnamon, allspice, ginger and nutmeg. Fresh citrus oils including
bergamot, sweet orange, lemon and tangerine recall memories of old
fashioned citrus pomanders. Warming oils include Orange, Black
Pepper and Rosemary. Immune boosting oils are Tea-Tree, Lavender,
Sandalwood and Bergamot. To ease congestion and fight infections use
Tea-Tree, Pine, Eucalyptus and Lavender. Bergamot tea is useful for
a sore throat and can be used as a gargle. Chamomile tea is very

alternative to air spays. It compliments the Oil of Oregano to
neutralize the over growth of Candida. Put a few drops on a tissue
and vacuum it into your vacuum bag to freshen the smell of your
carpets and furniture coverings. 1 drop is also very refreshing and
purifying when taken in a glass of water.

spicy aroma and is known for its sensual, exotic effect. Neroil oil

***Taken from "Earth Power" by Scott Cunningham
Healing with the Earth works through the process of transference. The wound or disease is transferred magically to another substance, usually an organic one, which is then buried. As it rots it releases the wound or disease.
To remove a disease or heal a wound, rub the afflicted part with an apple or potato. Then, as quickly as possible, dig a hole in the ground, put it in, and cover it over with earth. It is done.
One note here might be wise. Healing magick should always be used in addition to conventional medicine and never as a replacement. Doctors are the only people qualified to help your body heal itself.
By all means perform healing magick for yourself or friends - but not in the place of qualified medical attention. The medicine of today was the magick of yesterday.
Into a long, small bottle pour fresh, clean soil. Fill it to the top and cap it. Place this bottle near the entrance, preferable in a window, to guard against evil entering your home.
In past ages the earth was thought to confound evil spirits and demons, who had to count every grain of earth in the bottle before entering the dwelling.
Today evil spirits are seen as negativity which floats around the Earth in large quantities. This negativity can enter your home. Therefore, this earth protection bottle can be useful in blocking negativity from entering your house.
Taken from "Earth, Air, Fire & Water" by Scott Cunningham
Windchimes are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and designs. They're also ruled by the element of Air and can be used to guard your home against unwanted guests and negative energies.
Find, make, or buy a new set of windchimes. They should emit a definite sound. Before suspending them outside, charge them to do their task with the following (or a similar) spell.
Place the windchimes on a flat surface in your place of magick. Gaze down at them, realizing that they're lifeless, still, unmoving.
Wave your projective hand over them while saying:
Lift the windchimes by the string from which they will be hung. Hold them before your face. Blow against the dangling noise-makers, visualizing their tones scattering and driving away negativity.
Hang them up outside, with visualization, and let the windchimes do their work.
For the best results, repeat this simple charging spell every nine days.
***Taken from "Earth, Air, Fire and Water" by Scott Cunningham
Those of us who study the old ways of natural magick are usually fond of books. Our fondness often leads us to loan them to friends. Unfortunately, loaning a book may mean that we'll never see it again.
Hence, this book binding spell. It utilizes knot magick. Binding and knots are ruled by the element of Earth.
In natural magick, knots are physical objects that both represent intangible goals (such as the return of loaned property) and absorb personal power. The following spell utilizes the power of the knot in this way.
(This spell isn't intended to force or to coerce another human being to return a book; it's a spell to ensure the book's return. It doesn't affect the loanee, it affects the book itself.)
Before you loan the book, hold it between your palms. Send personal power into it while saying:
Wrap one foot of plain white cotton string around the book, securing the string with a knot. Knot tightly, but leave enough slack so that you can slip off the string wihout untying the knot. As you make the knot, visualize the book returning to you, and say once again:
Slip off the knotted cord. Put in some secret place. As you actually loan the book, say the words again (even under your breath). The book should, indeed, return to you. Once it has, untie or cut the cord. It's done it's work.
|Money Bag Spell
Set the cauldron on your pentacle. Place a small dish inside your cauldron with a small amount of cinnamon sticks and cedar chips on it. On the right side of the cauldron, lay your wand. On the left side of the cauldron, have ready a green candle.
Once all is ready, calm yourself with a short meditation. In your mind’s eye, imagine yourself surrounded by money; coins of silver and gold, gems, etc. Once you have a clear image of this in your mind, open your eyes and light the taper.
Tap each coin (one after the other) as you say the following chant:
Place the coins in the cauldron with the herbs. Stir the air clockwise over the cauldron. Chant:
After this, allow the candle to burn almost all the way down. Pinch it out once about a half inch of wax is left to it. Put the coins in the talisman bag, along with a few pieces of the cinnamon sticks, cedar chips, and the remaining candle wax. Wear this talisman for nine days. On the ninth night, repeat the spell using fresh herbs and a new candle.
|Candle Spell to Get a Job
Time: Thursdays (only after you have submitted your resume or applications)
With a pin or sharp knife, write the name of the company(s) you want to work for on the side of the large green candle. On the red candle, you need to carve the victory rune (Tiwaz, it looks like an arrow, pointing up) and your full name. Burn both candles for 30 minutes on Thursday after the sun sets, while visualizing yourself getting the kind of job you want. At the end of the 30 minutes, snuff the candles (do not blow them out). Burn them each Thursday after that for 15 minutes until they burn out, or until you get the job.
Once you get a job, dispose of the candles and leave a small bowl of milk outside overnight as an offering.
Money Bottle Spell
Place each item into your thin, tall bottle (a spice bottle will do). Cap it tightly. Shake the bottle with your projective hand for five minutes, while chanting:
Herbs and silver,
Copper and grain;
Work to increase
my money gain.
Place the money bottle on a table somewhere in your house. Leave your purse or wallet near the bottle when at home.
Home Protection Spell
A bright, sunny morning
Start by mixing water and salt in a bowl. Add garlic salt and powdered rosemary if you need to clear out ghosts or spirits. Consecrate the mixture.
Begin at the main entrance of the house or apartment. Sprinkle some of the consecrated water by dipping your fingers in it and making the sign of the pentagram. In a firm and commanding voice with all of your power behind it, say:
Evil shall leave but not enter.
Proceed counterclockwise through the house, repeating the procedure in every corner of each room, at all the windows, doors and mirrors. Don’t forget telephones, fax machines, televisions, modems, radios, computers that are connected to the Internet — any outside connection to your house. (It doesn’t hurt to do the mailbox after you finish with everything inside the house.)
Repeat the spell annually, or whenever you feel in need of it.
Magickal Healing Bath
Take a silver or white candle, some salt, and a healing oil (such as carnation, violet, sandalwood, or narcissus) into the bathroom. Light the Candle as you invoke your deities. By the candle’s light run a tub of very warm water. Cast some salt into it, add a few drops of your favorite healing oil, and then step into the tub. Relax. Feel the warm salted water sinking into your pores, through your skin, sterilizing the sick portions of your body. Visualize the “black worms” of disease leaving it and when you feel the water teeming with them. Pull the plug and let the water drain out. While it is draining chant:
The sickness is flowing out of me,
Into the water, down to the sea.
when the tub is completely drained stand up. Splash your body with fresh water (a shower is ideal) to remove the last vestiges of the sickness-laden water. Repeat as needed to speed your body’s recovery.
Crystal Spell for Healing
Place candles on altar in semicircle, with the incense off to the side Place the paper with the person’s name in the center, with the quartz crystal on top. Center yourself, and inhale the incense. Gather energy, and when you feel ready, release the energy, directing it through the crystal to the recipient.
Stop Nightmares Spell
Lay the scarf out. You will be putting spices into it. Place the spices (ground sage, 4 cloves, basil) into the scarf and add 2 drops of oil. Gather the scarf at the top (like a moneybag) and tie it with the ribbon. On the outside of the scarf draw the nightmare that plagues you (e.g. spiders, falling, whatever). Place the scarf under your pillow and sleep with it there
Sit quietly in a chair, back straight. Visualize a blue light surrounding your body. Hold that vision for a couple mins. If you feel you need more protection, enforce it with silver (steel). Then go about your normal everyday life, knowing and believing that you are protected from any negativity, and it will bounce right off of you. You don't have to think about it all the time, it's there and it will do it's work. Every once in awhile, repeat if you think it's necessary.
Almost always used in magick making, candles are associated with the fire element. They speak a magickal language, the words being expressed by the flickering and dancing of the candle flame, the billowing of the smoke, and the popping of the hot wax. Candles chatter, and the direction of the flame denote magical communication.
There are many questions on the art of candle magick. This section will show the different techniques in successful candle magick using feathers, rattles, oils, crystals and parchment paper. This teaches a simple yet successful way in burning candles and candle magick. Your candle magick can be very ceremonial or very simple. Sometimes, the simpler the better.
A lot of witches burn candles just about every night. They burn a candle in honor of the Goddess. Just burning a candle, too, puts you in the right frame of mind. Some witches, even if they are burning a candle in honor of the Goddess, still dress the candle. Dressing the candle means applying the right kind of oil and/or writing out on your candle what you want. So, you need to know the right kind of candle and the right oil. Most of this information is supplied in books which can be purchased are many book stores. If you can find a nice witchy shop, more the better.
Now you have to do a little homework for your candle magick to be successful. Research, research, research. There are planetary influences, there is whether the moon is waxing, full, or waning; there is the day of the week — certain days are better to do the kind of magick you are looking for. There is also Moon Void Of Course. When the Moon is void of course, do not do any magick. If you want to do a simple candle magick, the most important thing would be the phase of the moon and the void of course.. There is the oil or oils that you will need. Whenever you are searching for the right oil, you also need a catalyst which gives it that extra boost, like cinnamon. Catalyst herbs need to be in all spells. You need to use catalyst herb/oil along with your intended oil to send it off, to activate it. But just a pinch or drop or so of oil. They are:
1. Dragons Blood – all spells should have this herb. Whatever you put in, you get out.
2. Allspice is good for money.
3. Cinnamon – psychic work and love spell.
4. Cloves – love and psychic.
5. Galangal – this is a good one for prosperity.
6. Lilac – with flower power (feminine).
9. Myrrh – another great oil which gives power to any oil.
The color of the candle is very important as well:
White candles reflect all colors back.
Red for sexual love.
Pink for love of the heart.
Orange – for attraction. This is good for a calling.
Yellow – well being, concentration, intuition.
Green – represents health and healing, money, changes and renewal.
Blue – spiritual, healing, memory.
Indigo – Brow, third eye, psychic center. Helps to see aura. Psychic awareness. Purple – Crown center, royal color, Deity, spiritual.
Brown – Stability.
Grey – represents intuition.
Now when purchasing your candle, most witches buy the small candles which can be found in New Age stores.
When doing magick, there is always good and bad that comes with it (explain that nothing is free and when you do magick and ask for something there will always be a sacrifice of something).
When you are doing your spell, think positive that it will work. Never, ever think that your spell will not work.
When doing a candle magick, leave opening for Gods to let them make decision. Also, set a time limit on the candle magick. Give it a certain amount of time for it to happen and if it does not, then do it again. Also remember, sometimes you just might not get your wish, and it might not be because you failed in your magick, but because it is not in the cards for you. Like you might ask to be rich but maybe this lifetime you are not meant to be rich.
However, when your magick does work, do not forget to thank the Gods. Also, feel that feeling of how it feels when something great happens and put that same feeling in another candle magick that you do.
When you are putting things together for magick, you are making magick work; you are energizing and enhancing magick. Ritual sweep is acquiring the ingredients you need for particular spell beforehand, thinking what you want, what will make it work.
Spells do not last forever. If some time has passed, say a Full Moon or so then you must do it again.
To start with, write a paragraph of what you want. Then form into a few sentences, then a sentence, then a word. You have to visualize what you want. Do not narrow yourself on how you will get what you want, leave open for that.
Most people go to a God for the energy source like Kuan Yin for love and compassion, etc. But know your energy source. If you do go to the Gods, make sure that you go to the God for that strength and character traits.
You can charge your candle with a quartz crystal, or by using a laser wand crystal, or a magickal wand made out of a particular wood. You can place your candle on a paton or pentacle. You can write a petition on parchment paper of what you specifically want and also putting certain oils on the paper or wrap herbs in the parchment paper as well or do both. Then fold parchment paper up and place it under your candle and let candle burn down and then light parchment paper and watch it burn and while doing so, see what you want happening. Then take the ashes outside and toss them in the air to be taken to the Gods.

Remember the most important and that is what phase the moon is in. If it is waning, you want to work on something that you do not want anymore or some kind of psychic work. If it is waxing, then for new things, etc. Or suppose you are in need of money but the moon is waning, then you do a banishing spell of banishing poverty. You do not have to really wait for the moon—you just work WITH THE MOON. Some witches are particular with the moon. If the moon is full at 7:30 a.m. Sunday morning, then Saturday night theyI will do their candle magick, because by 7:31 a.m., the moon has started its waning process. Spells are too important to witches. If they want something bad enough, they will make time for their magick.
Prepare for ritual. Decide what it is you want to work on which is called the ritual sweep we mentioned above. You can prepare sacred space or you can cast a circle. Sometimes, when you are preparing your candle for the type of magick, music can play a major roll in your candle magick. Music reaches into the depth of your soul and you need that depth to put in that candle. You need your feelings to be poured into that candle.
Ceremonial – make test of things. Choose space and set up like props appropriately and then prepare yourself: wearing special clothes, jewelry, wear something different to trigger your mind. You will have done your homework in the oils and incenses you will need.
Choose color of candle best for situation. Before this point you will have done your petition and then you put that petition onto the candle with a special knife/cutter — something you use only for magickal purposes. Then you will put on the oil that goes with the spell onto your candle and all of the time you are rubbing that candle with the oil, you are visualizing that it has happened, and that you got your wish. There are different ways in which books tell you to rub the oil in your candle. There really is no wrong way. Only what you feel is right. But concentration is very important. When dressing the candle, see your spell as already happening. Do not say “I WANT” but “I HAVE,” as if it happened already. If you want to run your prepared candle through the smoke of your incense burner, then do so as well.
Then you do a Rune of Consecration as follows:
Upon this candle words of fire, spell out the words of my desire.
Take these words and give them wings, As they descend from thoughts to things.
Bless these things and make them real, O Lady of the Silver Wheel, And ye harm none.
CONE OF POWER -
Then you want to energize that candle. There are many ways to energize the candle — singing, chanting, dancing, meditation. Some witches use a special rattle that is sacred to them. They start up slowly and start chanting and rattling over the candle to wake up the spirits. Some have turtle rattles that are very magickal. Then you go faster, faster, still chanting, and then faster till you think you are going to burst with it all. You are loud with your chanting, you are holding nothing back. Then all of a sudden, drop your rattle and grab candle with both hands and send that energy into that candle. Feel it going into the candle. This is called the Cone of Power. Then light the candle. Some people prefer lighting their candle with the candle representing the Goddess. Also, if you have a feather or a feather with a crystal, whatever, with that feather you can send the energy up to the Gods. Birds are great messengers to the Gods. So imagine you are pushing, pushing that energy of your desires up with the feather until a bird comes to take your wish and watch that bird fly, fly away to the Gods.
When done, you bind the candle speall with this Rune as follows:
I call Earth to bind this spell, Air, speed its
travel well. Fire, give it spirit from above,
Water, quench my spell with love.
Now watch the flame of your spell candle, and in that flame, see yourself having what you wished for. Let your spell candle burn completely and evenly. Some believe that if your candle does not burn down all the way that you will not get what you wished for.
After this is done, do not think of spell again. Do not dwell on it. And remember KEEP SILENT. Do not go around and discuss your spell. There will be forces out there that will start tearing it down either by friends who do not believe in magick, etc.
If you cut a circle, then it is time for the Goddess to leave so say your farewells.
Then dismiss the quarters.
Draw back the energy..
Now remember, the candle must burn down by the end of the waxing moon or waning moon, depending on the magickal time you did it in. Never blow out a magickal candle. If you cannot let it burn all night, put it out by snuffing and when you have more time, simply say a prayer over the candle, visualize your having what you want, light the candle and you are on your way. But most of your serious witches’ always make time for their candles to burn. You can also put the burning candle in the middle of your tub (no curtains around it of course) or in the kitchen sink, free of any articles in the sink.
Divination- reading from a normal deck
Waxing - the moon is growing larger in the sky, moving from a narrow crescent just after the new moon towards the full moon.
The waxing moon grows from right to left and is called the 'right-hand moon' - the crescent is like the curve between the right-hand's index finger and thumb.
Waning - the moon is decreasing in size, moving from the full moon back towards a crescent as the new moon approaches.
The waning moon decreases from right to left and is called the 'left-hand moon' because of its similarity to the curve on the left hand.
Energy is now waning with the moon herself, and is linked with the Crone aspect of the Goddess.
Gibbous - during the phases between the First Quarter and the full moon, and between the full moon and the Last Quarter, when more than half of the disc is illuminated.
The full moon nearest to the Autumn Equinox is called the 'Harvest moon'. This is because for several nights it appears large and bright in the early evening, bringing farmers valuable extra time to gather in their harvest.
The Celtic year was once divided into 13 months - one for each moon occuring during the year.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth passes between the Moon and the Sun. Because full Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth - Lunar eclipses can only happen when the Moon is full. Though not as thrilling as a solar eclipse, the Moon can be seen to magically change colour, becoming coppery or even red - this is due to light being reflected from the Earth onto the Moon's surface (known as 'earthshine'). During the eclipse you can see the Earth’s shadow slowly reach across the surface of the Moon.
